A Dead Cat’s Tail.
Yesterday, driving from Hasan square towards the nation stadium my heart skipped a beat when suddenly in the centre of the road I spotted a cat lying still, it’s blood splattered on the cold tar of the road, lifeless. Apparently a driver didn’t had the audacity to pause for a few split seconds to spare the life of a poor cat. The cats lifeless body lying in the centre of the city and it’s tail pointing towards us citizens, a sign that we have become so insensitive that we have stopped respecting life, of fellow human beings, of animals and of all God’s creations.
A student, a child, an old man, of a father, mother sister, wife, daughter, who once back in the timeline who too were lying lifeless just like this cat, on a Similar road, and like the cats tail their gaze pointing towards to city asking only one question. “Was the rush really worth taking away a life ?” The city is silent, maybe of guilt or too insensitive to understand the question.
